Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

What is Web Hosting Plus?

Web Hosting Plus is Linux Hosting (with cPanel), but with the power and resources of a private server without the need for a server administrator. Otherwise it's the same cPanel experience as shared hosting.

What's the difference between Linux Hosting, Web Hosting Plus, and a VPS?

  • Shared hosting is an inexpensive way to get your sites up on the web.
  • A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is more powerful, but costs more than shared hosting, and requires experience with server administration.
  • Web Hosting Plus is a balance between the two, offering the power of a VPS with the ease of shared hosting.
